LOVE WHAT YOU DO_OR FIGURE OUT A WAY TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE… It is easy to let an array of external forces get in your way. You know the typical culprits, like wanting everything to be just so…so much that you end up spending a lot of time in the “preparation phase” that you […]

  I get it now, why people love family reunions. We celebrated my husband’s parents 70th anniversary, family members traveled near and far for this joyous occasion. The festivities took place in a small town in northern California ¬†that we affectionally call Sampsonville, the real name is Kelseyville, population 3000, three hours north east of […]
